Wrap Loves #4

From John Booth's colourful new clothing collaboration with Sunspel, zines about murals and Dusen Dusen's dreamy dog beds – here's our latest round-up of some of the people and projects that have been inspiring us recently.

Sunspel X John Booth

Sunspel’s latest drop has been timed perfectly for some social distance hangouts in the sun. Teaming up with colour master John Booth, the clothing brand’s new collection features shirts, shorts and socks in summertime hues. Pick from pared-back tees sprinkled with clouds and peeking suns, to 'out there' pieces covered seam-to-seam in zinging shapes and colours that started out life as handout collage designs. To launch the collaboration, John made a one-off jumpsuit for Hot Chip frontman Alexis Taylor, and frankly we’re devastated it’s not for sale.

Dusen Dusen Dog Beds

The latest addition to Dusen Dusen’s SS20 collection is one for our furry pals. Having applied the very best prints to clothing and homeware for us humans for the past ten years (we’re pretty in love with this dress right now too), the Brooklyn-based design studio also drops in some spot-on dog products from time-to-time to keep our pets just as well accessorised. Choose between a black and white embroidered check print, or a multicoloured ‘landscape’ bed for your pooch to rest its head. No four-legged friend? It doubles as a floor pillow which could come in handy for lockdown napping.

ZEBU's Rug Zine

Mural making is just one of the many strings to ZEBU’s bow. The illustration and art duo have painted walls from Berlin (where they’re based), to Barcelona, Mexico City, Shanghai and beyond, and this book is a collection of the rug-inspired murals they've been busy adorning walls with from 2016-19. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for an imminent restock of the zine, but in the meantime we’ll be leafing through an earlier title from their colourful collection, including 'When I was a Child' and 'Let's Go Outside'.

Original Art by Charlotte Trounce

If you’re using this time to finally get your home looking tip-top, then purchasing some artwork for your walls might well be on the agenda. Longtime Wrap collaborator, Charlotte Trounce’s web shop should be your first port of call, where a handful of original pieces are currently on sale. Get your hands on paper and tape collages, or richly-coloured oil pastel compositions. Charlotte moved to Edinburgh from London a week before lockdown began, and many of the artworks on sale are inspiring by her new local surroundings, and views from her flat.

Everpress

Billed as a global marketplace for independent creativity, Everpress is a one-stop shop for selling, manufacturing and distributing apparel. Creatives can upload their designs, set profit margins for their campaign and begin selling tees and jumpers internationally without having to cart hundreds of parcels to the post office. The best bit is the pre-order model, which means there’s no excess printing and in turn, no waste.

One project we’re loving on the site currently is a collaboration between Submit to Love Studios, a group of self-taught artists who have survived brain injury, and a group of established artists. Members of the collective have been paired with creatives like Rose Blake and Lizzie King (left), and the result is a collection of four gorgeous charity T-shirts. 100 percent of profits will go towards the studio and its charity's emergency fundraising appeal ‘Home Not Alone’ to combat losses caused by the pandemic.
